Only 4 recordings at once

My X1 will not record more than 4 shows at once.  Also, if I hit record while watching a show it soes not pick up what is in the buffer.  Anyone had a similar issue?

They’re not “off”, they’d have to be unplugged. Swap one of those secondary boxes for an XG2. The XG2 has its own tuners to give, freeing up your dvr

Do you mean other TVs?  I have 3 additional sets besides the X1. But nothing else.  And I've had the issue when the other sets are off.

What equipment do you have? Every secondary box(besides an XG2) takes a tuner from the dvr.

The ability to record a buffer was removed years ago.

Thanks for the info.  Not the answer I was hoping for.  Guess I will see what it takes to get the other tuners.  Thanks again.

Also check that you have the most recent dvr, the oldest only have 5 tuners
